Is my caterer required to have a tent to cook on site?

You have the right to choose any caterer as long as they are licensed and have their proper permits. We recommend a catering tent; however, it is not required.

  • All open flames and fryers must be a safe distance from the mansion and fire extinguishers should be present and comply with the fire marshal’s regulations.
  • We recommend that your wedding coordinator clearly explain to the caterer where set-up is to take place.
  • For the ease of your caterer, we recommend that you have their set-up close to the parking area and power source.
